The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza in Dallas is presenting an
exhibit of photographs by Stanley Tretick, who photographed presi-
dents and celebrities and covered wars and campaigns, but achieved
international prominence with his intimate and informal portraits of
President John F. Kennedy and his children. The exhibit is scheduled to
close on February 23.
This exhibit, entitled Stanley Tretick: The Kennedy Years, features these
unforgettable photographs of John and Jackie and their children,
Kennedy's presidential campaign of 1959-1960, as well as Tretick's extra-
ordinary pictures from the Korean War. It was organized by the Corcoran
Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and contains a number of vintage
prints, many shown in Texas for the first time. Many of these photographs
appeared in Look magazine, one of the preeminent picture magazines of

The museum is open from 9 A.M. until 6 P.M. daily. Tickets are $1o for
adults and $9 for seniors 65 and up and children ages 6-18. Children
under the age of 6 are free. Audio tours are available in six languages.
